Kellie’s Simple Penne with Pepperoni & Cheese
- 1 box Barilla® Pronto® Penne
- 1 ½ cups cold water
- 1 ½ cups chicken broth
- 1 cup yellow onion diced
- 1 cup Pepperoni diced
- 1 garlic clove minced
- ½ cup Pecorino cheese grated
- 5 basil leaves torn
- Salt and black pepper to taste
1Pour the whole box of pasta into a large skillet (approximately 12 inches in diameter). Pour 1 1/2 cups of cold water and chicken broth into the pan, ensuring that the liquid covers the pasta. Add onion.
Turn on the burner to high, then set your timer for 10 minutes. Optional: add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to taste.
3Cook on high, stirring regularly, until most of the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes but may vary by stove.
4When pasta is almost done, add pepperoni and garlic; gently cook through. Remove from heat and stir in cheese and basil. Serve immediately.
